another ugly loss.

this time, some guy named DeRozan, showed Kawhi how its done, earning a triple double on the way to smoking the Raps.

Bucks are now on top of the division (by percentage points)

Loved the look Demar gave to the Raptors bench after he recorded his 10th assist

First career triple double against his former team - great stuff.

He had a great game, but until DeRozan can actually win something, I don't think Leonard needs him as a role model. Wink

San Antonio isn't even a lock for the playoffs - rebuilding would've probably been a better move than trading for DeRozan.

It's unfortunate the Raptors have been so injury plagued this year. Their record is probably at least 2-3 wins better with Lowry and Valanciunas healthy.

Hopefully they're in good condition for the postseason.

Even with the injuries, they are still on pace to win 55+ games and Top 2 in the East. Not too shabby so far.


Leonard has missed 9 games, Lowry 10, JV, 10, Ibaka 4, FVV 5, even depth guys like Delon, CJ, OG have been banged up some too and missed time. I expect the first 3 mentioned all to miss several more games as well.

They need shooters. They miss far too many open looks, and have all year. Even if everyone is healthy, their team D improves, but their shooting still sucks.

6 for 30 from beyond the arc last night. Thats 24 possessions on that alone that they leave with no points, instead of maybe working for an easier 2.

They are 25th I believe in 3FG% as a team. That needs to improve for sure. Masai might be active for shooters at the deadline perhaps.

Raps with a big win against the Bucks...probably the biggest game of the season to this point...battle for first, and they already lost two in the season series against the Bucks.

surprising thing in this game...they did better than the Bucks from 3 pt land...and the Raps were able to win without any significant help from the bench. It was all about the balanced attack from the starters, to offset a massive game from Antetokounmpo.

Nice win for the Raptors tonight too. Kawhi sits out after initially Nurse said he thought he'd play after last nights game. Lowry came back though and the bench was huge in a good win over a good Indiana team.

Boucher hit a 3 in the final minute to reach 50 points for the bench tonight. 17 of 33 from 3 tonight helped a lot too.


They were able to distribute minutes around nicely tonight too considering it's there 4th game in 6 nights. Van Vleet played the most with 35, Lowry and Powell played 32 (Powell was on fire 23 pts on 10-12 shooting), nobody else played more than 26 minutes, and they got 11 players into the game.

Ah for frak sake...

15 pt lead after 1...same 15 pt lead after 3...and they cough it up...tied up after Leonard could not drain a winner with 2.7 seconds left...

Going to overtime.

Cant even put away the Wizards.

Those last 2 minutes or so was awful. Danny Green made more poor decisions in those last 2 minutes, than he probably did all game. Brutal.
